      EVENT DETAILS
      Anza-Borrego Desert Paleontology Society Annual Open House

      Visit our working Paleontology Laboratory and Collection Hall.
      Our featured fossils this year are our Camels.The modern Anza-Borrego Desert is a treasure trove of camelid fossils and is quite possibly the greatest for any site in North America. In the Anza-Borrego paleontological record, camels are the second-most common group, second only to horses. But their diversity is greater. There are at least eight different forms of camels known. And a wide array of camel and llama tracks are found in extensive trackways in preserved muddy deposits.
      Visit us at our Open House on Saturday and Sunday to see our featured camel specimens and tracks. We will also be showing our work using 3D scanning and photogrammetry to create digital images and printable models of fossils.
      In the Paleontology Laboratory we are preparing our latest Mammoth skull, numerous mammoth bones and a giant land tortoise – all will be on display.

      Meet at the ABDSP Visitors Center for the short walk over to the Stout Research Center.
